Rainbow Six Siege Best Settings – In-game Settings

Do you want to improve or boost FPS in Rainbow Six Siege? Then start with these in-game settings:

R6S General Settings

  • Resolution: Try 1920×1080, but if after all the adjustments you need more FPS try a lower one
  • V-SYNC: Disabled
  • Field of View: 80-85
  • Screen Ratio: The Pro choice would be 4:3, but if you don’t like it choose a wider aspect ratio
  • Calibration – Brightness: 65

R6S Graphics settings

  • Texture Quality: Minimum (if you need more FPS) or Medium (if you are ok), more info at the end (*)
  • Texture Filtering: x16
  • LOD Quality: High
  • Shading Quality: Low
  • Shadow Quality: Medium
  • Reflection Quality: Off
  • Ambient Occlusion: Off
  • Lens Effect: Off
  • Zoom-in Depth of Field: Off
  • Multi-sample Anti-aliasing: No

(*) Nobody likes to reduce the quality of the textures, but the benefits, in terms of FPS, are enormous. Using a medium texture quality instead of ultra means +50% fps, but using a minimum texture quality means nearly +100% FPS. So, of course it’s worth it.

Rainbow Six Siege Best Settings – Sharpen Factor

The last thing you should do is to change the value of the TAASharpenFactor:

Find the GameSettings.ini file (Documents/My Games/Rainbow Six…) and change the value of TAASharpenFactor to 0.375

Your computer and your graphic card also need to be fully optimized:

Graphics Card Settings for R6S

  • Update Drivers
  • Max Performance: 3d settings – Adjust Image settings
  • Antialiasing: Off
  • Texture Filtering: High Performance

Computer Settings for R6S

Of course, first of all check the Rainbow Six Siege System Requirements (Minimum and Recommended). But if the Requirements are not the reason:

  • Windows Performance: Go to Properties > Advanced System Settings > Performance, and finally uncheck all the boxes.
  • Disable Core Parking: Press Win + R at the same time > type msconfig > go to Boot > Advanced Options, and finally choose max number of processors
  • Disable Startup Programs: Press Win + R at the same time > type msconfig > go to Startup tab > and finally uncheck all the programs you don’t need when you start windows
  • Power Options: Go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options, and finally choose High Performance
  • Temperature: Clean your PC (dust) to cool down
  • Reinstall Windows: It can be an option if everything else fails and there is no good reason
